About this listing
Just off Upper Street, close to shops, restaurants and pubs, this classic Georgian flat has been restored to mint condition. The 2 bedrooms are on the lower ground floor and the living area is on the ground level, with easy access to the garden.
Sadly we have had to put up our prices in 2017 for the first time in three years to cater for the 90 day restriction on London rentals. As you can see we are superhosts with great reviews - come and stay while the flat is still available!!
The flat has a host of original Georgian features, with two working fireplaces, shutters and windows - it has been fully modernised to give complete comfort. There is one double bed, with access to the garden and the other bedroom has two single beds. There is also a spare mattress which can be used in the room or upstairs if required for an additional charge.
The flat is not suitable for small children, although we will consider having infants who are not yet toddling.
We've just installed a brand new boiler so if you've seen any reviews that give you concerns about the hot water that is now completely fixed and we have piping hot water for showers and baths and a lovely warm space.
Minimum stay is 4 nights.
The guests will have complete access to all areas of the flat.
Interaction with guests
The guests will be left to their own devices, with a full list of instructions and recommendations included in the welcome pack. We can be contacted if required by telephone. We will offer a self check in if we cannot be there in person to check you in - I will discuss this with you once you've confirmed your dates.
Islington is a vibrant community with everything you need close at hand. The flat's location is superb, with many restaurants, bars and shops within a 5 minute walk. We are a 15 minute walk from Sadler's Wells and less than 5 minutes from the Almeida Theatre. The Business Design Centre is also very close at hand, less than 5 minutes walk away.
Angel tube station is less than 10 minutes walk away, the bus stop with a direct connection to Kings Cross and Euston is 4 minutes walk away. Parking is available in the surrounding streets, and we have residents' vouchers available to purchase.
Other things to note
The flat is located downstairs so if you have difficulty with stairs this might be tricky - sadly there is no elevator in an old Georgian building.
We would expect people to treat the property as if it were their own place.
I am a freelance coach who also works for a charity. My wife Sue and I love travelling and meeting new people so Airbnb is a perfect fit for us. We've got three adult children so have more time to take on new things. You will find us at the theatre, in local restaurants and bars, discovering cities ideally by bicycle and experiencing different cultures all round the world.
